At Reifen ESSEN Pirelli introduces its new regional tyre: R:01 Triathlon

Versatility, more kilometres and lower fuel consumption for your business


16 May 2016. We are almost there. Reifen, one of the most important fair of the tire industry, is opening on 24 May at ESSEN. The industry meets in Essen every two years, and demonstrates its innovations, developments and trends in an impressive way. As usual Pirelli will be present and will take this opportunity to launch its new truck and bus tyre. In fact, after several years of Pirelli research and development, indoor and outdoor tests, and market tests that have shown its high performance, able to satisfy the needs of the most demanding fleets, the new regional R:01 Triathlon is on the market. It is the most versatile tyre of the Pirelli range, suitable for both regional and long-haul roads, as well as on wet and snow surfaces. Innovations in the triathlon product line are related to tyre structure, design and its compound.

Developed to offer a long lasting even wear of the tyre, the optimized footprint of the new regional Pirelli guarantees a high mileage and a low rolling resistance (which means low fuel consumption). Moreover, the innovative compound, with high silica content, improves performances in a wide range of temperatures and conditions, enhancing grip on wet and road holding on dry. R:01 Triathlon in fact, has both the M+S and 3PMSF markings.

To answer to an ever-demanding market especially concerning durability and versatility, the Triathlon tread pattern has been designed to suit different applications and respond to road roughness. All these aspects are conceived to meet control and safe driving which have always been key characteristics of the Pirelli offer.

Come to visit us at the Pirelli stand where the new Triathlon tyre will be on show. Our team will be at your disposal to give you any information required about the new regional as well as about the complete Pirelli product range and services.
